“We had a total of 80 shooters attend, which is down from previous years, unfortunately,” said organizer Lisa Salt. “The weather was exceptional, and the scores were pretty good, overall. We also celebrated Dave Wade of Courtenay, B.C.’s 150,000 milestone P.I.T.A. target at the banquet on Sunday night. There were tons of RVers and shooters around everywhere.”
